FWIW, I think that separating out as many FG subsystems as possible 
would be a very good way to go, especially in view of how CPU 
development is now solidly focussed on multiple core CPUs rather than 
ramping processing speeds, as was inevitable in the longer term.

Re this particular subsystem, it might be worth also thinking about 
handling some of the weather stuff i.e. 3d clouds, storms and thermals, 
so these are also consistant over MP.
